In his piece on [Media Temple being bought by GoDaddy](http://www.baseballnation.com/2013/10/16/4843104/alcs-game3-peralta-bad-call-one-run-games-red-sox-tigers), Marco makes some recommendations about where to host your website. I agree with this recommendation:
> For VPSes, I use and recommend [Linode](https://www.linode.com/?r=0a0ee6d9705b4ea2ace5f56965fd14bde1b69828). They’ve been remarkably consistent over the last couple of years, and their control panel is excellent. I ran some test servers on the cheaper, SSD-equipped [DigitalOcean](https://www.digitalocean.com/) over the last few months, but found them to be inconsistent and immature. I think they’re having trouble keeping up with their growth.
I have been using [Lindoe](https://www.linode.com/?r=0a0ee6d9705b4ea2ace5f56965fd14bde1b69828)[^fn1] for a couple of years to host all of my websites, and I really, really like it.
